    Rear-Admiral Cuthbert Featherstone Daly (circa 1776 - 1851)
    Cuthbert Featherstone was the second son of Denis Daly of Castle Daly, Co. Meath. He entered the Navy on 17 February 1794 as a first class volunteer into ‘Andromache’ 38. He served as a midshipman and master's mate in ‘Trident’ 64, ‘Glory’ 98, ‘Prince George’ 98 and ‘Defiance’ 74. He was commissioned lieutenant into ‘Atlas’ 98 on 30 September 1800 and served until April 1802. He was then appointed senior lieutenant of ‘Arrow’ 28 on 1 March 1803. On 4 February 1805 ‘Arrow’ and ‘Acheron’ were captured by the French after a fierce action. Lieutenant Daly was held prisoner until July 1805. Then he was appointed senior in 'Diadem', 64 and after the capture of the Cape of Good Hope in January 1806 he was sent home in ‘Seahorse’ with despatches and on arrival was promoted commander 10 April 1806. On 8 January 1807 he was appointed to the command of ‘Comet’ 18. In August 1808, ‘Comet’ pursued three enemy corvettes and captured ‘Sylphe’. for his services during this action he was rewarded with a post commission dated 18th August. From 15 May to 14 July 1815 he commanded ‘Barham’ 74 in the North Sea but thereafter went on half pay. He was advanced to Rear-Admiral of the Blue on 9 November 1846. the National Index of Deaths confirms that his death was recorded during the December Quarter of 1851 in the Registration District of Marylebone.

Samuel Featherstone

     Samuel Featherstone married Jane Mathen in 1803 at St Luke, Chelsea, London, Middlesex, EnglandG; From Pallot's marriage Index Saml Featherstone Jane Mathen 1803 Chelsea St Lukes.1 Samuel Featherstone died before 29 June 1825 at Duke Street, Chelsea, London, Middlesex, EnglandG, aged an account of his death? From Old Bailey on line
Before Mr. Justice Burrough.
1115. Henry Green and James Alford were indicted for the wilful murder of Samuel Featherstone .
John Long . I am a carpenter, and live at Chelsea. - On the 23d of June, about half-past ten o'clock at night, I was in my parlour, in Beaufort-place, and heard a coach coming along Duke-street , which is a very narrow street; it was coming from town towards Battersea-bridge, at a very rapid rate - the noise immediately ceased; I went out, hearing a crash, and observed a chariot overturned, laying on its near side - Alford stood by the side of it, and Green at the horses' heads, they stood perfectly quiet; Alford was bleeding, and said his head was hurt; I asked them both if there was any one else hurt, if there was any one in the coach; I do not recollect that any answer was made: Alford appeared to stand stupified; I inquired of Green, but got no answer from him: I told him to take the horses off, which he did - i continued to inquire if any one else was in the coach, it being quite dark I could not see - I got no answer. Alford appeared intoxicated - Green was sober.

Q. Did Alford's not answering you appear to arise from his intoxication? A. He was certainly stupified with the accident. While I was making the inquiry a man crawled out of the carriage window - I put my hand under his arm to assist him; he told me to let him alone, it was all right - he appeared stunned or intoxicated; his name was Burgoyne. At that instant a lantern was brought, and held to the carriage - we then discovered the deceased in a dreadful mangled state; he was dead: I knew him perfectly well - his name was Samuel Featherstone; his body was taken out of the carriage, and carried into a public-house; a vast quantity of blood had come from his head: some neighbours then gave the prisoners in charge - Alford, who was the coachman, said he was ready to go any where; Green was very riotous, and declared he would not go. We could get no information as to the circumstance from either of them. Immediately after the accident happened Green was laughing heartily, which we reproved him for. He broke from the watchman, and got away, and was taken in an hour.

Cross-examined by Mr. Brodrick. Q. Was Featherstone a large heavy man? A. Yes; when I discovered him his head was out of the near side front window - his injury was at the back of the head. There is a deep gutter on the side of the road, and an iron grating over a sink. the carriage laid on the off side of the road, over, or on the grating - the wheel might have gone on the grating, and overturned the coach. Alford's head was very much injured - it was enough to stupify any man.

Cross-examined by Mr. Law. Q. Who took the horses out? A. Green - he was furthest from the carriage (when I came up) at the horses' heads, as if to prevent their going on; the carriage did not appear to have been dragged. I think the state of the road, assisted by the weight of the deceased, sufficient to cause the overturn. - When Green laughed I thought he was in hysterics, but his conduct afterwards convinced me that was not the case: I have since learned that he had been in liquor.

court. Q. When he was laughing did you observe any thing? A. They were saying it was all right. the deceased had not then been discovered.

Q. If the carriage was driven at a proper rate, was it likely to be overturned? A. Certainly not; carriages pass over it fifty times a day: it was overturned ten or twenty yards from the turning; the road may be thirty or forty yards wide: it is a large open space, at the foot of Battersea-bridge; the coach was in the way from the narrow street to Beaufort-row.

Thomas Wineman . I live in Duke-street, Chelsea - four doors from Long. I saw this carriage pass my door at eight o'clock, towards town; it went so fast that I did not notice who drove; it was a sky blue chariot: I was at my door at half-past ten o'clock, and saw it coming back; I do not know who drove; I think there were two persons on the box - it was galloping as fast as the horses could go; I did not hear them whipped; Featherstone put his head out of window, towards the coachman - I cannot say whether he said any thing, but the coachman immediately turned the horses very sharp round into Beaufort-place - the fire flew from the horses' shoes; I saw the carriage overturned in a moment; I cannot tell how it happened; I went up to it in about five minutes - saw Long and several more there. I heard Green's voice but saw neither of them.

Cross-examined by Mr. Brodrick. Q. You live in Duke-street? A. Yes, just at the corner, where it turns into the wide space where Long lives; the coach overturned about twenty yards from my door; Featherstone was leaning out of the left-hand side widow - not the front.

Michael Morris . I live in the Broadway, between Lombard-street and Duke-street. I was at my window about half-past ten o'clock, and heard a chariot coming down Lombard-street with great rapidity; I opened my window; it stopped suddenly, directly under my window, as a stage coach was coming down to meet it; I saw Featherstone in the chariot, and a stranger: the prisoners were on the box; I cannot say which had the reins - they were both intoxicated - Alford particularly so; I heard them calling to the stage coachman to get out of the way; the stage was walking at a moderate pace; immediately as the coach cleared the chariot they flogged the horses most desperately; the horses started off at a full gallop - I saw them for fifty yards, which is the extent of the street, and heard the carriage go over with a most tremendous crash; the horses went at the same pace till it overturned; their shoes struck fire all the way up the street; I ran down stairs and went to the spot, found the prisoners in custody, and put several questions to Alford, but could get no answer; he appeared very drunk - Green was asking why he was given in charge; he broke from the watchman, and was afterwards taken; he appeared sorry for what had occurred; it was known then that the man was killed. There is a grating near to where the coach fell, and a little slope, but there was no danger if they had gone at a proper rate - a hundred carriages pass over it daily - there is a gas light close to the place.

Cross-examined by Mr. Brodrick. Q. How far from the end of the street did it pull up for the stage to pass? A. About fifty yards; my house stands in the broadway, between two narrow streets; it was overturned fifteen or twenty yards from Duke-street, immediately off the stones; the horses started at a full gallop the instant the stage passed - they had been galloping before.

Q. If it had overturned by the violence of the horses, would they not have dragged it some way after? A. I should think so: Alford said his head was hurt; I had seen him drunk an hour and a half before.

Cross-examined by Mr. Law. Q. Green seemed sorry when he found the man was dead? A. I think so - I have frequently seen him with Featherstone, on friendly terms.

Thomas Pore . I am an officer. I took Green in charge, in bed at his house. I saw Alford with Featherstone, at half past eight o'clock, at a public-house next door to me - I saw him come out and drive away.

Thomas Stirling , esq. I am a Coroner, before whom the inquisition was taken. I have the account which Alford gave of the transaction; I cautioned him four or five times, but he made this statement voluntarily - I wished him not to do it.

This document was here read, stating, that he (Alford) had driven the deceased to various public houses, where he drank a considerable quantity of wine and spirits with him, and got intoxicated; that he held the reins at the time the accident happened, but could not tell how it occurred.

Stephen Flemmington . I am the stage-coachman, who passed the coach. I called to them, and they backed, about the length of their horses, out of the narrow part, to let me pass: the horses must have been quiet to let him back: I saw them go on after I had passed, but did not notice at what pace - they could not go very fast, for the space was not a hundred yards; they were job horses, and could not be got into a full gallop in that space - the carriage had no perch.

Alford - guilty. Aged 26.

Of Manslaughter only .

I am a carpenter, and live at Chelsea. - On the 23d of June, about half-past ten o'clock at night, I was in my parlour, in Beaufort-place, and heard a coach coming along Duke-street , which is a very narrow street; it was coming from town towards Battersea-bridge, at a very rapid rate - the noise immediately ceased; I went out, hearing a crash, and observed a chariot overturned, laying on its near side - Alford stood by the side of it, and Green at the horses' heads, they stood perfectly quiet; Alford was bleeding, and said his head was hurt; I asked them both if there was any one else hurt, if there was any one in the coach; I do not recollect that any answer was made: Alford appeared to stand stupified; I inquired of Green, but got no answer from him: I told him to take the horses off, which he did - i continued to inquire if any one else was in the coach, it being quite dark I could not see - I got no answer. Alford appeared intoxicated - Green was sober.

Q. Did Alford's not answering you appear to arise from his intoxication? A. He was certainly stupified with the accident. While I was making the inquiry a man crawled out of the carriage window - I put my hand under his arm to assist him; he told me to let him alone, it was all right - he appeared stunned or intoxicated; his name was Burgoyne. At that instant a lantern was brought, and held to the carriage - we then discovered the deceased in a dreadful mangled state; he was dead: I knew him perfectly well - his name was Samuel Featherstone; his body was taken out of the carriage, and carried into a public-house; a vast quantity of blood had come from his head: some neighbours then gave the prisoners in charge - Alford, who was the coachman, said he was ready to go any where; Green was very riotous, and declared he would not go. We could get no information as to the circumstance from either of them. Immediately after the accident happened Green was laughing heartily, which we reproved him for. He broke from the watchman, and got away, and was taken in an hour.

Cross-examined by MR. BRODRICK. Q. Was Featherstone a large heavy man? A. Yes; when I discovered him his head was out of the near side front window - his injury was at the back of the head. There is a deep gutter on the side of the road, and an iron grating over a sink. The carriage laid on the off side of the road, over, or on the grating - the wheel might have gone on the grating, and overturned the coach. Alford's head was very much injured - it was enough to stupify any man.

Cross-examined by MR. LAW. Q. Who took the horses out? A. Green - he was furthest from the carriage (when I came up) at the horses' heads, as if to prevent their going on; the carriage did not appear to have been dragged. I think the state of the road, assisted by the weight of the deceased, sufficient to cause the overturn. - When Green laughed I thought he was in hysterics, but his conduct afterwards convinced me that was not the case: I have since learned that he had been in liquor.

COURT. Q. When he was laughing did you observe any thing? A. They were saying it was all right. The deceased had not then been discovered.

Q. If the carriage was driven at a proper rate, was it likely to be overturned? A. Certainly not; carriages pass over it fifty times a day: it was overturned ten or twenty yards from the turning; the road may be thirty or forty yards wide: it is a large open space, at the foot of Battersea-bridge; the coach was in the way from the narrow street to Beaufort-row.

Thomas WINEMAN . I live in Duke-street, Chelsea - four doors from Long. I saw this carriage pass my door at eight o'clock, towards town; it went so fast that I did not notice who drove; it was a sky blue chariot: I was at my door at half-past ten o'clock, and saw it coming back; I do not know who drove; I think there were two persons on the box - it was galloping as fast as the horses could go; I did not hear them whipped; Featherstone put his head out of window, towards the coachman - I cannot say whether he said any thing, but the coachman immediately turned the horses very sharp round into Beaufort-place - the fire flew from the horses' shoes; I saw the carriage overturned in a moment; I cannot tell how it happened; I went up to it in about five minutes - saw Long and several more there. I heard Green's voice but saw neither of them.

Cross-examined by MR. BRODRICK. Q. You live in Duke-street? A. Yes, just at the corner, where it turns into the wide space where Long lives; the coach overturned about twenty yards from my door; Featherstone was leaning out of the left-hand side widow - not the front.

Michael Morris . I live in the Broadway, between Lombard-street and Duke-street. I was at my window about half-past ten o'clock, and heard a chariot coming down Lombard-street with great rapidity; I opened my window; it stopped suddenly, directly under my window, as a stage coach was coming down to meet it; I saw Featherstone in the chariot, and a stranger: the prisoners were on the box; I cannot say which had the reins - they were both intoxicated - Alford particularly so; I heard them calling to the stage coachman to get out of the way; the stage was walking at a moderate pace; immediately as the coach cleared the chariot they flogged the horses most desperately; the horses started off at a full gallop - I saw them for fifty yards, which is the extent of the street, and heard the carriage go over with a most tremendous crash; the horses went at the same pace till it overturned; their shoes struck fire all the way up the street; I ran down stairs and went to the spot, found the prisoners in custody, and

See original put several questions to Alford, but could get no answer; he appeared very drunk - Green was asking why he was given in charge; he broke from the watchman, and was afterwards taken; he appeared sorry for what had occurred; it was known then that the man was killed. There is a grating near to where the coach fell, and a little slope, but there was no danger if they had gone at a proper rate - a hundred carriages pass over it daily - there is a gas light close to the place.

Cross-examined by MR. BRODRICK. Q. How far from the end of the street did it pull up for the stage to pass? A. About fifty yards; my house stands in the broadway, between two narrow streets; it was overturned fifteen or twenty yards from Duke-street, immediately off the stones; the horses started at a full gallop the instant the stage passed - they had been galloping before.

Q. If it had overturned by the violence of the horses, would they not have dragged it some way after? A. I should think so: Alford said his head was hurt; I had seen him drunk an hour and a half before.

Cross-examined by MR. LAW. Q. Green seemed sorry when he found the man was dead? A. I think so - I have frequently seen him with Featherstone, on friendly terms.

Thomas POCRE . I am an officer. I took Green in charge, in bed at his house. I saw Alford with Featherstone, at half past eight o'clock, at a public-house next door to me - I saw him come out and drive away.

Thomas STIRLING , ESQ. I am a Coroner, before whom the inquisition was taken. I have the account which Alford gave of the transaction; I cantioned him four or five times, but he made this statement voluntarily - I wished him not to do it.

This document was here read, stating, that he (Alford) had driven the deceased to various public houses, where he drank a considerable quantity of wine and spirits with him, and got intoxicated; that he held the reins at the time the accident happened, but could not tell how it occurred.

Stephen FLEMMINGTON . I am the stage-coachman, who passed the coach. I called to them, and they backed, about the length of their horses, out of the narrow part, to let me pass: the horses must have been quiet to let him back: I saw them go on after I had passed, but did not notice at what pace - they could not go very fast, for the space was not a hundred yards; they were job horses, and could not be got into a full gallop in that space - the carriage had no perch.

ALFORD - GUILTY. Aged 26.

Of Manslaughter only .

The prisoner received a good character and was recommended to mercy.

Confined One Year .

GREEN - NOT GUILTY .

     William Featherstone died before 1831.1
     Kent Database; Y. Y. He we have a contact for this family D Does anyone have any Featherstone's in Sevenoaks, Kent around 1796? I am chasing information on William Featherstone who married Lydia Whitelock in 1795. Their first child was Lydia Maria Featherstone who was born in Sevenoaks, according to her adult christening record. Have no idea where William and Lydia came from before they turned up in London and no idea why their child would be born in Sevenoaks. Any information would be much appreciated. Thanks, Nicki cliveandnicki@optusnet.com.au

This is the only entry on the IGI for a Featherstone at this church
William Fetherstone Birth: 1 March 1741 Christening: 14 March 1741 Saint Mary-St Marylebone Road, Saint Marylebone, London Parents: Joseph Fetherstone and Elizabeth Batch No.: C035241

Featherstone/Whitelock/Cameron From: Clive & Nicki Byrne Subject: [Lon] Featherstone/Whitelock/Cameron Date: Fri, 29 September 2000 20:16:44 -0700

I am new to the list and would like to post some information in the hope that some kind person may be able to assist me or point me in the right direction. I would love to contact anyone who may be researching the same family. The main person of my interest is Michael Featherstone. I have some information but no confirmation of his birth etc. Any help in this area would be much appreciated. The information I have is as follows: Michael was born about 1805 (obtained from age on death certificate) and married Charlotte Cameron. I have no details of this marriage. They had 3 (or maybe 4) children who were born in England and then left for South Australia. Another child was born at sea in 1837 and then a further 4 children were born in South Australia.

The children born in England were:

Sarah Esther Featherstone born 5 September 1828 (christened Wesleyan Chapel, Clerkenwell)
Martha Featherstone born 28 October 1835 at Little Woodstock, Marylebone,Middlesex (perhaps this was the residence of Michael and Charlotte?). Note, in later census Martha gives her birthplace as Norwood, Surrey.
Hepzibah Featherstone born 17 July 1837 (have this certificate and it lists residence of Michael and Charlotte as 3 Nottingham Place, Holloway, Middlesex)

I would dearly love to find a record of the marriage of Michael and Charlotte (parents were Henry and Rachel) but have no idea of where or exactly when (assume prior to 1828) they were married!!

I have confirmed that Michael had a sister called Esther (married in Australia to William Smithson) and also a brother Richard. Richard had two daughters, Charlotte Mary Featherstone and Maria Lydia Featherstone. I have not been able to locate any birth details for Esther, Richard or Richard's children.

Some information leads me to believe that Michael's parents were William Featherstone and Lydia Whitelock. They were married on 1 January 1795 at St Marylebone. If anyone has access to these parish records, I would love to know what additional information is shown.

The IGI shows that William and Lydia 3 children. It does not show Michael, Richard or Esther. The children shown are Lydia Maria Featherstone (born 1796 in Sevenoaks, Kent and christened 1817 City Road Chapel Wesleyan, Finsbury, London) and Ebenezer William Featherstone (christened 1802 Spa Fields Lady Huntingdons, Clerkenwell, London). William died before Lydia Maria's christening in 1817, according to christening records.

Once again, sorry to bombard you with so much information but I am working on the motto, too much rather than not enough!! Thank you for any help or advice you can offer.

Regards, Nicki.

Michael Featherstone

Father*William Featherstone d. b 1831
Mother*Lydia Whitelock b. c 1771, d. 20 Jul 1845
     Michael Featherstone was born circa 1805. He was the son of William Featherstone and Lydia Whitelock. Michael Featherstone died on 31 August 1854 at Brighton, South Australia, AustraliaG.1
     Y. He from Featherstone Society web pages - Australian Links
Michael Featherstone was an early settler in the Brighton South Australia , who came to South Australia on the ship "Hoogly" in 1839, with his wife Charlotte nee Cameron and two children, a son William Paul was born at sea, it is thought his first child, Sarah Ester died before they left England.

He took up land in Brighton allotment 16 of section 236, on which he built a very substantial home in about 1840 named Providence Cottage and later Avenue House now Brighton House, Minda Homes.

He was not an original Grantee of the land, as the records show that this section was originally granted to Matthew Smith.

Early in 1843 he gave an acre of land in the north-east corner of his property on the Brighton Road frontage as a site for a church, which was built and controlled by the Congregationalists. It was the first church and burial grounds in Brighton.

This old historic house is still in an excellent state of preservation. The cedar doors, skirting boards, architrave's, etc. still bear witness of the craftsmanship of those early tradesmen who built the home.
At the rear is the house are servants' quarters, consisting of underground rooms without light or ventilation, typical of the days when they were built. There is also a baker's oven and a covered-in cobbled carriage-way which leads from the ornate stables to the rear entrance of the house. Large rooms with high ceilings, marbled mantlepieces, a wine cellar of generous proportions, and other appertenances all give an atmosphere of gracious living.
Michael Featherstone also set aside a piece of land described thus in Lands Title Dept Records:
"Enrolled G.R.O. No 36, Book 23" -
"Except a piece of land being the south-western corner of allotment 16 containing by measurement in length from east to west 300 feet, in width 50 feet, reserved for a family burial ground."
This piece of land was always excluded when transfers from one owner to another took place.
It was on this piece of land just behind the sand hills that the family vault was built. The vault was built of stone masonry, with a brick arch over the entrance, which was closed by means of a slate slab. On the top of the arched roof was a brick superstructure in which were placed the marble tablets.

The tragic story of hardships and heartbreaks endured by the sturdy pioneers is recorded on these marble tablets as follows:-
"The family vault of Michael Featherstone. Esq." (west side). "In memory of Michael Featherstone, who departed this life August 31st 1854" (east side)".
In the vault beneath are deposited the remains of Michael Featherstone (jnr) born July 14th, 1841, died December 14th, 1841; also John Featherstone, born July 4th, 1846, died July 14th, 1846." (north side).
Subsequently his wife, Charlotte, was interred in 1867, and later his cousin, Charlotte Smithson, and three infant grandchildren, Raymond, Minnie and Ethel Featherstone",
(at a date not recorded )

There is also thoughts that the body of Michael and Charlotte's first child was moved from London to the vault, this may have been Sarah Ester.

Various suggestions have been put forward as to the reason why the vault was built in the sand hills. One was that Michael Featherstone wished to be buried "within the sound of the sea," but a more practical suggestion was that after the first child had been buried in the family vault in the cemetery attached to the Congregational Church (North Brighton Cemetery) the vault became flooded and so a vault was built high up on the sand hills at the rear of the Featherstone property.

A private Act of Parliament was passed on 19th June, 1856, to enable the executors of Michael Featherstone's will to carry out the necessary instructions contained in his long and complicated will.

The Property passed from the Featherstone family in 1877 when Mr. John Hodgkiss bought it.

Later, in 1882, Mr. Walter Hackett became the owner, and it was Miss I.M. Hackett who gave the buildings which adjoined Minda Home to that Home for use as accommodation for the senior girls.
The main building is now known as "Sunbeam House."

In the newspaper "The Mail" of 7th April, 1923, there is an account of the breaking open of the Featherstone vault by unauthorised persons. The damage was repaired, and for over 30 years the vault remained undisturbed, surrounded by olive trees, and became an object of interest to people young and old who cared to climb the sand hills in search of local history.

After several incidents of vandalism , a grandson of Michael Featherstone living in Sydney gave instructions through the Trustee Company to remove the remains from the vault and to re-inter them in the local cemetery. Mr. F.H. Trevelion, the undertaker, was engaged for the task at the time when vandals wrecked the vault, superstructure and iron fence surrounding it in October, 1954. They broke open the vault itself, destroyed the coffins inside and desecrated the final resting place of the earthly remains of three adults and five children.

Much speculation was made as to who was responsible for such vandalism and for the reason for such actions. The newspapers reported the happenings in detail, but no satisfactory explanations were advanced. New coffins were made and the remains were interred in St. Jude's Cemetery on 2nd November, 1954.

So closed the story of one of South Australia's "earliest and wealthiest families" who received so much unwanted publicity so long after all association with Brighton had ceased.
